The Agility Factor: Flexible Leadership for a Changing World

With the increasing demands of globalization and changing technological advancement, the capacity to lead with agility and adapt to changing conditions is vital to sustaining your company's performance. The Conference Board of Canada and The Niagara Institute present a special live webinar that will help you identify and develop this crucial growth attribute. The Agility Factor with Palma Robinson introduces and defines the concept of learning agility through case studies, reviews and discusses its theoretical and empirical background, and presents selected measures of learning agility. A significant consequence of today's dynamic, complex and uncertain business environment is that leadership skills are subject to continual obsolescence and displacement. To be effective, leaders must demonstrate the flexibility and agility to adapt their behaviours as situations change. The willingness and capability to learn from experience and subsequently to apply that learning to perform successfully under new or first-time conditions becomes one of the most critical success factors for managers and executives. That is why learning agility is considered an important predictor of leaders' potential for future success.

Leadership is Half the Story—A Fresh Look at Followership, Leadership and Collaboration

Imagine you had a secret formula for your business. One that could improve sales, production, quality, revenue per employee, and customer satisfaction by 17% to 43%. What would it be worth to you? What would it mean for your organization? How much would you be willing to invest in that opportunity? In a world that’s constantly changing, it’s striking that there has been no new major leadership theory since 1979. Leadership models have been tweaked incrementally, but have mostly failed to keep up with the change that organizations face on a daily basis. 21st Century workplaces require a radically different leadership approach, one that not only maximizes leadership capabilities, but also followership capabilities.

Seeing the Light: How to Minimize the Health Impacts of Shiftwork

9–5 is the typical day for a Canadian worker, but a significant percentage of Canada’s working population works regular night or rotating shifts, regular evening shifts, split shifts, or are working on call or with irregular schedules. Shiftwork does have its benefits: for example, it can be better paid, can be more convenient for childcare, and can allow workers to pursue other hobbies or family activities. Yet despite these social benefits, shiftwork has numerous negative impacts on the human body, including sleep disruption, lifestyle disturbance, exposure to less sunshine, and exposure to light at night. There are also other less obvious impacts of shiftwork, including the suppression of melatonin, disruption of diet and physical activity, and decrease in vitamin D. Shiftwork can also impact the workplace itself, potentially leading to increased injury rates, absences due to illness, and mental health issues such as depression, stress, or disrupted work-life balance. But in a global, 24 hour business world, shift work is here to stay. So what can be done to minimize it’s negative impact on both employees and employers? The World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified shiftwork, and its correlation with circadian disruption, as probably carcinogenic, or having the potential to cause cancer. In this webinar, Dr. Paul A. Demers will explain the major arguments that justified this stance. Paul will present the scientific evidence, and will examine recent studies that have shed light on the association between shiftwork and different types of cancer, such as breast cancer, prostate cancer and others.

Wellness in the Workplace: Focusing on Mental Fitness

A focus on positive mental health has the ability to increase a person's capacity for enjoyment and to better react to everyday challenges. Promoting the use of positive mental health and strength-based approaches in the workplace involves not only shifting attitudes and beliefs about people, but also reframing the way we communicate, interact and work with others. When such methods are applied, emerging issues or problems become opportunities for pursuing positive and healthy change. Promoting well-being and positive mental health can be achieved through focusing on a concept called mental fitness. Mental fitness has been defined as a psychological state that can be achieved through the following three needs: Relatedness: Reciprocity and relationships. Our need for connection to family, peers, and other significant individuals. Competency: Recognizing and using our gifts and strengths in achieving our personal goals. Autonomy: Being active participants in making choices that affect our lives.
